Kate Evans, author of

Like All We Love and For the May Queen

Hats off to this fascinating American story--a tribute to Hungarian immigrant women and their families, who arrived in America during the early 20th century. Buffeted on the sea of life, yet their faith and culture anchors them in their new home.

Dr. August J. Molnar, President,

American Hungarian Foundation

The Other Sister is a vivid and richly detailed story of the immigrant experience in America. Pat Valdata follows three generations of sisters through poverty and prosperity, and lets us share their triumphs and heartbreak. It is beautiful, funny, sad and very readable.
